We decided to have a nice dinner for our last night in Honolulu after a two week vacation. We thought we would play it ‘safe’ by going to Hard Rock. The food was outstanding... when we finally got it.

We booked a table online which was easy and convenient. Arrived and seated within ten minutes. After that it all went down hill. We waited 20 minutes before we even saw our waiter, he came and took our drinks order. Then it was another 20 mins before we saw him again for our food order. A further 30 mins before our main meals came out with no sign of our entrees and one meal missing. Half way though the dinner our entree arrived.

After another 35 minutes the missing meal appeared. The waiter did try to make it right by telling us the entree and late meal was on the house but it was too little too late. The waiter then decided to tell us that there was some issues with a supervisor who the staff were not happy with, he said he suspected that the kitchen staff were trying to make him look bad since he was working that night. We didn’t even bother hanging around for a desert since we had to be up at 3:30am to catch a flight and had wasted more than enough time on our last night at Hard Rock.

The alcoholic/non-alcoholic drinks were amazing. The live music was definitely a key factor why I love the place. The guitar wall and then in total the interior design and gallery walls were also eye catching. The snacks could be better.

My waiter was not attentive and seemed not to be very familiar with the menu. I asked if my margarita came in the mason jar and he didn’t know. My sister ordered a Bllue Drink that came in a decorative stemmed glass and he told her it also came in a mason jar. He (or perhaps the kitchen staff) mixed up my burger order and I got a well done burger instead of the medium one they gave to my sister. I asked for salad “instead” of fries and got both. Lucky for me I wasn’t charged. He seemed frustrated with our quiet and polite requests to make things right and so instead remained at the table next to us chatting. After the bill came I had to actually flag another server to pick it up because he never returned. I love the HRC and will return but if he is still there I will ask for a different server.

Slow service. Waiters and waitresses ignoring multiple customers. Asian couple was raising their hands trying to get service. Our appetizer came after the entree. Burger was dry. Spending $85 on a bad meal is cruel in itself. Didn’t order desert because we had enough. You can have the name and the atmosphere, but it still comes down to basics.
